Proper hazardous waste management requires a systematic and coherent approach with emphasis on prevention. To fulfill this, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has prepared the National Hazardous Waste Management Plan. Every household and business in Ireland creates a certain amount of hazardous waste, e.g. batteries, cooking and engine oil, old paint tins, fluorescent tubes, old unwanted medicines, and old gardening products such as weed killer.
The Recycling Centres at Scotch Corner and Convent Lands Carrickmacross will accept some of your household hazardous waste in the form of:
- Car and household batteries
- Engine and cooking oil
- Fluorescent tubes
- Used Mobile Phones & Chargers
Waste Management (Movement of Hazardous Waste) Regulations 1998
